Better servicing for better batteries
The demand for top-quality battery care and service has grown swiftly over the past decade as cars become more hi-tech and complicated, and drivers more reliant on electronics.
Because of the workload the average car battery carries, it is important batteries get regular servicing, just like any other vehicle component.
Which is why owners of today’s technically advanced cars are turning to trusted and professional auto repair shops to keep their cars – and their batteries – on the road longer.
The prudent car owner will pay a professional to ensure their batteries are not going to fail so they never have to put their day on hold while waiting for roadside assistance.
Regular servicing doesn’t just protect batteries, it protects your reputation. Leading garages are adding to their reputation by offering battery servicing as a feature of a regular service for an additional fee.
Servicing a vehicle can put stress on an undercharged battery, leaving it at risk of failure. In today’s competitive market, a failed battery, days after a service, will affect a garage’s reputation, customer loyalty and future sales.
The trend for a regular battery service has stirred competition in the auto service industry and compelled garage workshops to buy the latest charger technology which is better suited to charge batteries in hi-tech vehicles.
Many of the newest chargers, such as the CTEK MXTS 40, enable workshops to be more productive.
A technologically advanced, powerful and lightweight workshop charger.
The technologically-advanced, powerful and lightweight CTEK MXTS40 workshop charger gets the job done much safer and faster, so mechanics can keep the workshop at full flow.
The CTEK MXTS 40 is a fully-automatic eight-step “smart” charger, easy to use, and requires no specialist knowledge or monitoring – simply connect, forget and carry on with a normal service without the worrying about the risk of overcharging.
This unit is designed for the auto professional and many workshops have successfully updated their battery servicing technology with CTEK battery chargers, which are trusted in New Zealand, and around the world.
The MXTS 40 restores, charges and reconditions the battery using a patented multi-step charging process. The advanced electronics of CTEK mean that it is completely safe for the vehicle. It won’t disrupt sensitive vehicle electronics, so there is no need to disconnect the battery to charge it.
The MXTS 40 can also be used as a power supply for diagnostic or software flashing work. Fault-finding with diagnostic tools should only be carried out whilst the vehicle is connected to an adequate and stable source of power to avoid inaccurate data being sent back to the diagnostic device.
Similarly, a precise and stable voltage is necessary during ECU programming to avoid irreparable damage to the vehicle’s electronic control systems.
The MXTS 40 can meet these needs by delivering up to 40A of variable yet extremely stable battery support.
It is a highly portable device that comes with 2.5 metre cables and detachable clamps making it a simple-to-use, smart charger that can be used with all types of 12v and 24v lead-acid batteries including AGM and GEL. An easy-to-read LED interface provides clear readouts of current, voltage and amp charges.
The MXTS 40 is IP20 classified which makes it tough enough for the busiest workshop and comes with a two-year warranty and a host of safety features including non-sparking reverse polarity protection, spark proofing and temperature compensation.
The CTEK MXTS 40 lets the auto workshop confidently meet the advanced battery care needs of customers.
